I watched a few mins of the Man Utd game today. The first 15 mins and last 5 mins. I like Tim Howard. So sue me.

I just like him. Ok!

I pretty much support any team that have players from the US on their team!

ah, gotcha

I haven't decided what I think of Howard yet

I like how Beasley is doing well at PSV

the more Americans who leave the US to play in Europe the better for the USA national team

Indeed!

I thought Tim did very well when he first started with Man Utd. To be honest I was wondering what happend to him until I saw the FA cup match last week. I thought he was let go.


My best male friend here is a big Utd fan and we would go to some of the bars in town to watch the Man Utd./ Arsenal and Man Utd./Liverpool matches. With the exception of Arsenal I always cheer for the opposing team to piss my friend off. Besides in a bar full of football fans mostly filled with ex-pats from England, it made for a colorful morning. Damn I miss those mornings!

yes, at first I thought he was really good but then last season he made too many errors (so did Carroll)

Howard is lucky...we sold Carroll

Van der Sar is looking solid this season but I think Howard is a fine backup, he's young for a goalie too

I love that we have several places to watch games. I also love that I am able to walk into several bars here in Atlanta when a big game is on and get the feeling that I am overseas because of all the international folk are in there sipping on pints, drinking hot tea and having a traditional breakfast on a early Sat morning or Sun morning. I love listening to the conversations. It is almost always standing room only.

Two years ago during the Utd and Arsenal game the satellite went out during the game. All hell broke loose. I was glad I was standing by the door because if the satellite signal did not come back I was going to bolt out of there before a riot started! haha. Thankfully for all it came back on and it turned out to be a problem with the channel from England and not the dish problem.

Last world cup left me, my family and several friends and coworkers deprived of sleep.

that's cool I keep hearing that there are lots of English people here maybe i'll find out this summer

going down to the pub in England on the weekend for football matches



The last world cup was awful for timing this one will be far better, games on in the morning through to late afternoon instead of the middle of the night

Yeah hopefully one day soon I can see and be part of the real thing.

By the way, you can locate a local bar that shows matches by going to this site:
